Guardianships

We have many years of experience in guardianship actions.  Courts place a great burden on individuals attempting to establish a guardianship.  To obtain a guardianship of a minor, courts require a showing that there is a need of substitution or supplementation of parental care and supervision to provide for the essential physical and safety needs of the minor or to prevent specific, significant psychological harm to the minor.

The process of obtaining a guardianship can be difficult, especially if the guardianship is contested by the parents of the minor.  Obtaining a guardianship over an incapacitated adult can be even more difficult.  We can help you through these difficult processes.  Additionally, we help individuals in uncontested guardianship cases to ensure that the process goes smoothly and to help you keep peace of mind.
